It’s the same story every year. I come up with a huge list of all the things I want to do during the summer, and then summer passes by before I realize it. This summer is moving by especially fast since I am due to have a baby by the end of it. Of course, I have another massive list of all that I want to accomplish but I’m trying not to stress myself out over it. Summer is supposed be about having fun, right?
So here is my summer bucket list:
- Camp in the backyard
- Swim at the pool at least once a week
- Visit our local spray parks at least once a week
- Go to Six Flags (this is for my husband’s Father’s Day present)
- Participate in the Summer Reading Club at the library
- Have a lot of picnics
- Make popsicles
- Play in the sprinkler
- Go to VA Beach and Jamestown
- Pick berries, peaches and apples
- Do a nature color scavenger hunt
- Keep an nature/animal journal
- Create an outdoor play kitchen (make mudpies)
- Make a flower garden
- Make art with pressed flowers, including Flower Stained Glass
- Learn finger knitting and teach it to Monster
- Create a magical outdoor play space with logs, sticks, tent, zip line, sandbox, stepping stones, water wall and fairy lands
- Take daily walks at dusk
- Teach Monster to ride a bike without training wheels
- Visit new playgrounds
I have already accomplished numbers 4, 5, 8, part of 10, 14, and part of 17. So I’m off to a good start.
This list does not include all of the field trips that I want to take with my son as part of his homeschooling. I will share that list in my next post.
